Police & Crime Commissioner Arfon Jones with Peter Jones, Substance Misuse Volunteer Co-ordinator with AVOW and Tegan Sollis of AVOW

A police boss is taking to the streets to show his support for Wrexham’s growing number of homeless people.

North Wales Police and Crime Commissioner Arfon Jones will spend a whole day on the streets of the town to sample first hand exactly what life is like for someone without a roof over their head.

At the same time as highlighting their plight, the former police inspector aims to raise as much cash as possible for the charity, Wrexham Homeless.

Welsh Government figures recently revealed that Wrexham has the second highest rate of rough sleeping in Wales after Cardiff with numbers up nearly 60 per cent in a year.

A snapshot sample taken last November revealed North Wales’s largest town had the most with 27 people spotted bedding down outside at night.

Eagles Meadow Odeon manager Tom Dowse ran in the Manchester 10k on Sunday for MIND

A mental health charity is aiming to strengthen the support it provides in Wrexham.

North East Wales MIND is trying to establish what services are needed in the town and how it can work with other agencies.

Their finance manager, Andrea Hurst, was speaking after hearing that they’d been given a financial boost by Tom Dowse, manager at the Odeon cinema at Eagles Meadow in Wrexham.

Tom, 34, raised more than £100 by taking part in the Great Manchester Run which was held in the aftermath of the Manchester Arena atrocity.

It was one of a series of fund-raising efforts by staff at the Odeon who have MIND as their chosen charity this year.

Tom said: “The atmosphere was amazing with immense and supportive crowds everywhere. It was really positive and Manchester was a great place to be, no doubt about that.

Six year old Harvey Jones with grandad Llion on the Racecourse pitch with Joey Jones and Richard Hughes, left from Ifor Williams Trailers

A brave little boy battling leukaemia was “chuffed to bits” to be chosen to unveil the new Wrexham AFC kit.

Six year old Harvey Jones is the grandson of lifelong Wrexham fan Llion Jones who works for Ifor Williams Trailers who are sponsoring the club for the second year in succession.

The duo were presented with the new shirts by club legend Joey Jones who now manages the youth team after a long and distinguished career with Wrexham, Liverpool and Huddersfield.

Once again the distinctive Ifor Williams Trailers logo is on the front of the home and away shirts.

According to the club, the partnership was a perfect fit because of the iconic trailer firm’s community spirit which matched their own ethos as a club that’s owned and run by the fans.

 

The company, which has factories in Cynwyd, Corwen and Deeside, has a global network of distributors as far afield as Australia and New Zealand.

The new kit will be going on sale for the first time at a family fun event at the Racecourse at 4pm on Friday, June 16.
